Put the devices in a sealed bag full of CO2 or other flame negating gas- end of story. The real issue of collusion against personal mobility devices is the reason why airlines flat out ban self-balancing scooters.

The indication I've always used is the announcement that passengers may feel free to move around the cabin and/or the crew begin to move around the cabin. I've seen the seat belt sign illuminated for the entire duration of some flights, so it's not a useful indicator. Just because the air is rough it doesn't mean you can't/shouldn't recline your seat (unless ...

A senior cabin crewmember here... The "critical" times for flights is 3 minutes after take-off and 8 minutes before landing. This is the time in which the chance of having an emergency is relatively high, this includes some dangerous maneuvers as a result of rejected take-offs, wind shears, bird strikes, etc. So, technically speaking if you count 3 ...

Each passenger shall ...

If you looking for some sort of (semi)official marker, then you should use the cabin chimes. While these vary by airline there is very often a 10,000 ft chime which indicates the 'take-off' phase is over and cabin crew can begin service. There would be a similar final decent chime as well. This is when the announcements are made or video plays. The seat-...

On most of the overnight flights I've been on, the cabin crew have announced that passengers who want to sleep should have their seatbelts on, and visible over their blankets, etc. It's also recommended that you keep your seatbelt on, in case of sudden and unexpected turbulence. In turbulence, passengers need to be seat-belted to prevent them bouncing ...

In Economy, I have always interpreted the "fasten seat belt" sign switch-off as the time it is safe to recline the seat. Sometimes, due to turbulence or other reasons, the sign stays on for long after take-off. In that case I tend to wait for the plane to finish its climb and stabilise before I recline the seat. In Business with seats that turn into beds (...

A 1,5 km walk should be quite safe. But if this does not feel comfortable for you, there should be taxi's available in the railway station : http://www.belgianrail.be/en/stations-and-train/search-a-station/4/leuven.aspx and there are some buses at night also, depending on the location of your hotel : https://www.delijn.be/en/avond-nachtvervoer/nachtvervoer-...
